    Introducing Stuart, Gillian and Oliver. One by one they take their turn to speak straight out to the camera - and give their side of a contemporary love triangle. What begins as a comedy of misunderstanding slowly darkens and deepens into a compelling exploration of the quagmires of the heart.

    In Talking It Over, Gillian and Stuart were married until Oliver - witty, feckless Oliver - stole her away. In Love, etc, Julian Barnes revisits Stuart, Gillian, and Oliver, using the same intimate technique of allowing the characters to speak directly to the listener, to whisper their secrets, to argue for their version of the truth... Love, etc is a compelling exploration of contemporary love and its betrayals.

    witty, clever, but not engaging

    I like Barnes' writing, admire it too, but this somehow never grabbed me. Maybe the characters are too up themselves and thereby unsympathetic? But no..Show More »
